What is better than riding a fat bike by yourself? Riding with a bunch of other, of course. We had a plan to gather at the Woolly Trailhead and enjoy a lap or two followed by a campfire and some hanging out. Not that we hate the unseasonable warm weather, but it doesn’t make for good riding. We love fat biking on Woolly trails when they are dirt or perfectly groomed snow, but this Saturday is predicted to give us neither.
We won’t let that stop our fun because we know plenty of great places to ride fat bikes in the St Croix River Valley. If you have ever joined us for the Mammoth Gravel Classic, you have had a taste of the great sand and gravel roads located just north of St. Croix Falls. We have decided to explore some of the great sand and gravel roads, ATV and horse trails in the Sand Barrens just to our north. We will be meeting at the Wolf Creek Bar and plan to start riding at 9AM. It will be a 22ish mile course that will probably take 2-3 hours. Just because it will be dry doesn’t mean you should bring skinny tires because IT IS GLOBAL FAT BIKE DAY, but some of the trails, especially the many sandier sections, will be pretty tough to ride on a non-fat.

If you have any questions, please ask us on Facebook or Twitter. These are some of our favorite places to ride, so we are excited to show them to a few old friends…and hopeful some new ones. One of the highpoints of starting at the Wolf Creek Bar is we will also end at the Wolf Creek Bar. This will give us a great place to hang out post-ride and enjoy some great food to warm us up and possibly a recovery beverage or two.
GET YOUR FAT BIKES READY, THEN GRAB A FRIEND AND JOIN US FOR A GREAT TIME ON SATURDAY AT 9AM.
